THE BOARD of Trustees of NEBOSH are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Ian Taylor as Chief Executive.

Ian has extensive management experience in leading a variety of commercial businesses, membership bodies and charities with a track record of delivering significant transformation and growth.

Most recently, Ian was the CEO of the Skills Active Group, the Sector Skills Council for Active Leisure, Learning and Wellbeing. Prior to this, Ian had successfully led a number of organisations including Giant Bikes, ISL, Sport Scotland and London Irish Holdings.

Throughout his career, Ian has worked both within the UK and internationally, with significant experience of building effective and successful relationships with a wide variety of stakeholder groups including governments, governing bodies, regulators, awarding bodies and shareholders.

Ian said: “I am delighted to be joining the highly talented team at NEBOSH and working closely with the Board, and collaboratively with stakeholders, training providers and the industry.”

Ian will take up his appointment from 15 October 2018                                                 

Now that a new CEO appointment has been made, NEBOSH Chair, Sir Bill Callaghan, who recently announced his plans to retire, is stepping down from his position earlier than planned.
